Sure I'd like to see the pics. I have a 32 and I am faced with the same problem soon. I'd like to tackle it this winter if possible. I have never seen the hull/deck joint on a 32 so I am intimidated to "break the egg" even though I'd like to eat the omelette.

New Old Boat

Just bought myself a Bristol 30' and would like to know anything you Bristol owners have found out with your Bristols. Like what tends to need taking care of. Any problems you may have had. Modifications made, or needed. Repair problems. Or any good web sites for our boats.
